    Season 1 Episode 4: Why does it not feel dangerous?

    Despite all the evidence that we might be going to hell in a hand basket, climate and environmental change still does not feel dangerous to us in the way that other issues like war and terrorism do. Why is this? This episode explores the psychological processes behind why this topic is so hard for us to process. We dive into one particular aspect with Prof. Frances Moore: is it that we are just normalising these effects? This episode also reveals the moment with Maria and Phoebe realise that the problems we run into with climate change are surprisingly similar to their love lives.

Accessible and thought provoking

Really interesting podcast, discussing all those questions about the environment you’ve always wanted to ask.

The two hosts have a great rapport, and break down some complex science introduced by the ‘expert of the week’.

I’d definitely recommend a listen to everyone.

Absolutely brilliant!

Absolutely brilliant! Really accessible, well informed and non-judgemental conversations about climate change, the environment and our role in it all. Down to earth, honest and so engaging. To top it all off, Phoebe and Maria are hilarious and there’s a super groovy theme tune too!

This is a fantastic, relevant and timely podcast. There is so much for everyone who cares about the environment and how they can do something about it themselves. The easy going conversation before and after the interview is so cool and raises so many questions of my own. Great work! Can't wait to hear the other podcasts.
